    do you put a binding on rag quilts or just rag the outside edges? or does it even matter. i put binding on the one i made for my son but b/c of time constraints now I am afraid i won't be able to get the quilt done plus a binding before xmas.

    Most that I've seen are ragged on the edges too. Just depends on your preference.

    I made one as a baby quilt. Since it would be washed ALOT a put a binding on it and it looked great. Which ever is your preference works :-D

    I did one with a binding and it looked pretty. I didn't realize that it could go just clipped.
